I fell asleep and woke up screaming
I knew that I had something real

You don't have to tell me, I feel guilty enough already
And I'm tempted by digital record
I'm scared to death of what we may do next
My muscles have a deadly memory

This is, this as good, as good as I will ever be
I'm sorry if I'm not what you're looking for
'Cause I fell asleep and woke up screaming
I knew that I had something real

We all make some promises we have no business making,
But I gave you what you can only give one time.
Let's be honest with ourselves,
This shouldn't come as a surprise.
But I won't forget you,
You know I can't forget, forget you.

This is, this as good, as good as I will ever be.
I'm sorry if I'm not what you're looking for,
'Cause I fell asleep and woke up screaming.
I knew that I had something real.

I fell asleep and woke up screaming.
I knew that something had to change.

Baby, you can leave your clothes on.
Let's make love like we're not allowed to.
Let's reclaim the innocence of losing innocence, of losing innocence.
This is something I have to do

This is, this as good, as good as I will ever be.
I'm sorry if I'm not what you're looking for,
'Cause I fell asleep and woke up screaming.
I knew that I had something real.
'Cause I fell asleep and woke up screaming.
I knew that I had something, something real.

    My InterpretationI think this is such a great song, and they play it so well live.

    The lyrics are pretty straightforward. It's about breaking up with a significant other, who was probably your first love and took your virginity ("I gave you what you can only give one time")

    I love the mindset that TLTH portrays in the chorus of being confident enough in yourself to know that it is the other person's loss ("This is, this as good, as good as I will ever be/ I'm sorry if I'm not what you're looking for")

    Powerful song, and one I can definately relate to.

    Agree, disagree? Let me know...
